Ice, ice, baby. Hockey season is upon us once more! If you’re wondering how to watch the NHL, we’ve got you covered. Sound good? Read on.

The National Hockey League was founded in 1917 at the Windsor Hotel in Montréal. At the time of its establishment, the four teams in the league were all Canadian—hence the word “national”—but the NHL expanded to the United States in 1924 when the Boston Bruins joined. Between 1942 and 1967, the league comprised six teams known as the Original Six. Those teams were the Boston Bruins, Chicago Black Hawks, Detroit Red Wings, Montréal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs. The NHL doubled in size in 1967 to 12 teams, increased again to 18 teams by 1974 and there were 21 teams by 1979. In the years between 1991 and 2000, the NHL further expanded to 30 teams. The latest team to join the league was the Seattle Kraken in 2021, rounding out the NHL to 32 teams. But enough about hockey history. Here’s how to watch and stream hockey this season.
